To mark the 110th anniversary of the famous British Racing Green colour next year, watch maker Christopher Ward has launched three racing green timepieces.
The Swiss-made watches are based on the C7 Rapide Mark II, and have racing green faces but with different straps. Each has a 42mm case, 1/10th-second split timing and a tachymeter, and is water resistant to 10 metres.
Either side of the crown are buttons for the stopwatch, with a date window to the right of the face. Pick from leather or carbon-effect rubber straps, and a version with a stainless steel chain bracelet is £51 extra.
Only 300 British Racing Green chronographs will be built, and each comes with a 60-day no-quibble return policy and a 60-month warranty.
Christopher Ward has also become official timing partner to the Bluebird land speed record bid – due in 2014 – so expect a range of watches to coincide with this.
